Images Of Munich

Nobody likes to harp on about the stereotypes attached to a city when describing it, but it's hard not to when talking about Munich. The Bavarian capital is birthplace of the beer hall where men and women decked in lederhosen line larger than life beers in front of thirsty tourists to the sound of traditional oompah bands. But there is a lot more to the city than that. Munich gets increasingly cosmopolitan every year and it has one of the best selections of museums in Germany. This is why it now rivals Berlin as the most popular city in Germany with travellers.

    Not great

    Didn't see anything worth seeing. Tried to go to the English Gardens and what we found was just a park. Probably wouldn't recommend Munich to those going to sight see. Underground easy to use.

    Fun city stay in Munchen!

    We had a great time in Munich and it has plenty to see and do. You have to visit the numerous beerhalls and beergardens and have a stein or two with some locals ("FC BAYERN!"). The Englishgarten is well worth an afternoon (watch out for the Nudist Meadow), wander around the Viktualmarkt and visit the palace. Fun and busy three days in Munich.

    Insider Tip:If you get a bit sick off bratwurst and beer, try a restaurant by the Viktualmarkt such as Zwickl for a greater variety of dishes and twists on authentic dishes.

    Munich Review

    Beautiful city. Must see - English Garden and Deutsches Museum Transport - Day pass is value for money. Just be sure to identify the circles within which you will be travelling Food: Place around Hauptbahnhof caters to all types of cuisine at affordable rates. Entertainment options are plenty and cater to all tastes. Safety: Stay clear of drunkards and junkies at night.

    Insider Tip:Do visit the Dachau concentration camp. It is a very emotionally powerful experience.
